DO you have already do menu planning on your blog? Link up below. If you are new, make your post and come back and link up. It will go live Monday morning and stay up until Sunday night. Stop back to get more ideas. You can also post recipes on this link up. (sorry no crafts)



IF you want to host this link up with me on your blog send me an email. I'm looking for a few bloggers to join me. Email me for more details. (cafescrapper at gmail dot com). I kept the same linky so you can find more ideas if you are new this week. The linky will show the newest linked up post this week!


I will be visiting everyone who links up! IF you can't see the linky, let me know. I had to try something new today with this new layout.

Glad you found our blog and invited us to link up! I have a question. For your weekly dessert and bread, do they really last all week? How do you do it? My kids ask for dessert every night. We'll frequently give them an Oreo or something simple if I haven't made anything. We also sometimes say no. :) I've thought about just doing one dessert a week and when it's gone, it's gone. Just wondering how that and the bread works for your family.

Hi Michelle-
I sent you an email response but wanted to post here incase anyone else wants to know.

I pretty much make one dessert a week if it works out. I will make anything requested if I have the ingredients on hand to make it without having to go to the store. I didn't have it on the menu but someone asked for Egg Nog. I make it at Christmas but never afterwards because no one asked. I went ahead and picked up the ingredients- so easy to make...check my recipe tab. Anyhow with 3 teens, someone at sometime will need chocolate so I do make as requested.

Does that help? Same with breads. IF it is unsweet bread I will bake whenever I"m in the mood, if it is requested or on the menu.

No, most desserts don't last all week here either :)

Hi Susie, thanks for inviting me to the linky party. I make something very similar to your crazy breakfast recipe, and my family loves it. Thanks again and have a great week. :)

Hey Susie,
I posted my weekly recipe last night thinking it was for the link up that was for today (Monday)... I am new to all this so please forgive me and I will have it straight for next week! LOL I am linking my menu for this week here as it should have been. Desserts don't last long around here either. I will try to do something fun for the kids once a week or so... depending on what I have on hand and how busy the week is. Freezing cupcake (without the frosting) is a great time saver too... and I can pull out a few here and there for after school snacks and they don't all get devoured b/c they don't see them or know that mama has stashed them LOL!

Thanks for your response, but I didn't actually get an email. Yes, it does make sense! Thank you.

Taco Soup is a staple in our house this time of year. I love to make it in the crockpot!
